10. Mothers Help You Start Out
Before He was born, Mary the mother of Jesus knew God had remarkable plans for her son’s life (Luke 1:31-33). Recognizing He could help when wine ran out at a wedding at Cana in Galilee, she turned to Jesus telling Him, “They have no more wine” (John 2:1-3).
To her request, He replied, “Woman, why do you involve me?’ My hour has not yet come” (John 2:4). To his question, “His mother said to the servants, ‘do whatever he tells you’” (John 2:5).
Even though Jesus seemed reluctant, Mary seemed to understand it was time for Jesus’ public ministry to begin, and like a mother does, she helped Him get started in ministry.
As Mary helped Jesus to start out, God often ministers through mothers to help their children begin living out His plan for their lives.
